Dry Solids Volumetric Feeders have slow-rotating agitator.

Press Release Summary:

Along with circular flat bottom feed chambers, Models 170-1-2 and 170-2-2 feature slow-rotating, horizontal agitator operating at constant or variable speed. This ensures that 2 variable-speed metering augers are completely filled with product conditioned to consistent state while aiding downward flow of material from feeder's integral supply hopper into feed chamber. Along with feed range of over 130:1, features include max throughputs of 84 ft³/hr (170-1-2) and 160 ft³/hr(170-2-2).

Original Press Release:

New Model 170 Dry Solids Volumetric Feeders Feature a Specially Configured Slowly Rotating Horizontal Agitator to Ensure its Two Metering Augers are Completely Filled with "Conditioned" Product

Acrison, Inc., an innovative global leader in dry solids metering and handling technologies for over 50 years, has announced availability of their new Model 170 Dry Solids Volumetric Feeders.

Designed with circular flat bottom feed chambers, the Models 170-1-2 and 170-2-2 feature a specially configured, slowly rotating horizontal agitator (operating at a constant or variable speed) to ensure that the feeder’s two variable speed metering augers are completely filled with product “conditioned” to a consistent state, while simultaneously aiding the downward flow of material from the feeder’s integral supply hopper into the feed chamber.

Utilization of two metering augers vs a single auger makes it unnecessary to change the auger size when the desired feed rate range cannot effectively be covered by a single size auger. Proper sizing of the two independently driven metering augers enables a very wide feed range (over 130:1) with the Model 170-1-2 capable of a maximum throughput of 84 cu.ft./hr and 160 cu.ft./hr for the Model 170-2-2.

Both feeders will self-empty and can be emptied quickly via a novel discharge port located in the flat bottom feed chamber. These feeders are also able to provide high and low feed outputs for batching applications utilizing a large metering auger to feed the majority of the material for the desired batch, and a smaller metering auger to provide the final dribble amount so the highest degree of batch accuracy can be achieved. Reference Equipment Specification 1-200-0072.
